Book 2 Blurb
The Twelve Tasks have been completed. The title of Djed, the prophesied savior of the universe, has been claimed. Such an auspicious role will require countless hours of careful study and weapons training, but for Katie, the fourteen-year-old Child of Earth, time has run out.
Unnatural events have brought death and destruction to the magicked worlds. Without warning, one seals itself off. Vicious entities from an unknown realm ravage another. A strange illness afflicts the innocent on a third. Has the Great War begun? The Djed must eradicate the malevolent power that threatens all existence; yet what can Katie—unskilled and untrained—do to prevent calamity? Like the relentlessly turning gears of a watch, an unspeakable evil is rising, and there is no time for her to prepare.
The Djed Chronicles follows Katie over her teenage years as she confronts dark forces and discovers that the right choices are not always apparent and wrong choices can have deadly consequences.
Twelve Worlds. Two Opposing Forces. One Prophesied Hero.
The Djed Chronicles is a young adult series set in a vibrant universe containing twelve magicked worlds. Each is filled with entities both powerful and mighty whose actions and reactions effect the precarious balance that sustains all life. Over the centuries, when the shadow of war threatens to destroy the universe, a single individual has appeared to challenge the dark forces. Although these warriors, known simply as Djed, have succeeded in the past, there is no guarantee of success in the future.
No one knows how the Djed are chosen or by whom. They always appear on one of the magicked worlds without warning, always from a world that does not host magic. What is known that the next Djed is prophesied to be a child from Earth. Thirteen-year-old Katie must accomplish twelve difficult and dangerous tasks to prove she is the next Djed and, if acclaimed, accept a daunting challenge.
